Handmade Halloween

When I was asked to post Folksy Friday this week, I knew that it could only be with a Halloween theme.

Halloween has become bigger and better here in the UK over the years. I remember when it was a bit of fun at school where the youngest pupils would spend art classes happily making cat masks and witches hats while the upper sixth form would create a haunted house in the music department’s winding corridors and little practice rooms for our entertainment after supper and scare us half to death with home made slimy eyeballs, sound effects, dangly spiders webs, various revolting ‘edible’ treats and other spooky delights.

It would seem that Halloween has always been celebrated through the homemade and handmade even when it was rather basic and cobbled together, these days the art has grown up and become beautifully sophisticated and I think that is evident in the six fabulous items I’ve picked from the almost endless choice at Folksy. I think it’s wonderful that the great British crafting public have really taken to this celebration of the spooky, scary and eight-legged and I wish everyone a scary and bewitching night on Sunday!

Folksy Seller” Hello! I’m Sarah Franklin, known as Eyeshoot online. I have a long standing interest documenting graffiti and street art, risking my life photographing ‘birthday banners’ on roundabouts and duel carriageways, taking pictures of my food. As well as these slightly offbeat projects I do occasionally photograph beautiful things and as a result I have some lovely images from my travels in Morocco, Japan and Greece and nearer to home. My work is available as prints in various sizes as well as note cards – any requests for sizes or formats are always welcomed! Visit Eyeshoot Photography at Folksy to find out more
